BMI View: Ghana's mobile market benefits from the presence of four major regional and internationalplayers, which have driven rapid growth in the mobile market through competitive offers and innovativeservices By contrast, limited competition in the wireline market has stifled growth and investment into fixedbroadband services However, with digital migration now underway, the NCA's sale of 800MHz spectrum tomobile market leader MTN and increasing investment into fibre and last mile broadband connectivity,Ghana's data market is ripe for growth

Key Data
- The Ghanaian mobile market grew by 107% y-o-y in Q215 to reach nearly 120% penetration Theprevalence of multiple SIM ownership supports our view of continued growth, but increases the risk ofdiscounting of inactive SIMs over the coming years

- The mobile data market grew by 204% y-o-y, driven by expanding network coverage, falling tariffs andincreased availability of low-cost smartphones MTN successfully bid on 800MHz spectrum, which willenable it to expand data networks into rural areas more quickly, while also putting further pressure on theunderserved wireline broadband market
